Witch House, Drag, etc.

Hello all,

Noticed there wasn't a dedicated thread about these niche genres, wondering if anyone here is into it?

I run a small label, Tundra, that's currently releasing a lot of witchy stuff. I will also be releasing a lot of abstract beats, drone, and some noise later on.

Anyone doing their own thing? Running a label? Blog?

Re: Witch House, Drag, etc.

im not making it personally, but know some people doing so and quite successfully here in Denver.


im a bit on the fence with all of it... i like the aesthetic, i just wish it wasn't all so lo-fi.


im not sure that it will be a lasting genre, but for now its interesting.

Any links to your friends?

The lo-fi thing...you either love it or hate it. There ARE people producing witchy music sans the lo-fi thing (see: oOoOO, Ritualz, Balam Acab). I love distortion, but I also love quality recordings.

I don't think it's anything new, either. Chopped and screwed has been done for years and years and so has gothy electronic music. It won't last forever, of course.

Also, thanks for the links NeuralPunk. It's a shame to see so much hate when talking about this 'genre,' though.

Google Modern Witch and Pictureplane. Those are the 2 in Denver who are making the most noise right now.

Right on. Familiar with both. I'm fortunate enough to be putting out a Modern Witch/Os Ovni split 7" in 2011. Both bands are amazing.

Not sure if you're into psychadelic stuff or not, but here's a video by Os Ovni:



They've also got a new 7" out now.

Also, you're lucky to live in Minneapolis. Extreme Noise is my favorite record store ever.

Re: Witch House, Drag, etc.

What is Witch House! I dress up as a witch on stage and I do a couple of Daft Punk inspired tracks, does that make me witch house? Does Witch House have a distinctly "gingerbready" taste to the filter sweeps?

Please let me in on this

Re: Witch House, Drag, etc.

Okay, reading the Wikipedia article it sounds up my alley... got a couple of hip hop influenced tracks, got a Shoegaze influenced track or two... definitely got the goth & industrial influence. My stuff still sounds way different overall though, but I can see it developing more in that direction.

So, are there any "Witch House" DJs to send my stuff to? Should I made up some other bullshit subgenre? Witchwave? Witchcore? Witch Hop? Witch Pop?

I think all these splinter genres are a bit bollocks but I don't care this is too awesome a broomstick not to ride.

Re: Witch House, Drag, etc.

Yeah Im a fan of witchhouse - if you're a bit loose with your terms you could classify my stuff as witch house - but i tend to not go so nuts with the pads (kinda out of ways to classify what the hell i do :/) though i've been borrowing centralc's term "hexcore" *shrug* here's my crapola: soundcloud.com/sadore

Re: Witch House, Drag, etc.

So, I've kind of blown off nearly this entire thing, as almost all of it sounds terrible, and focusing so much on the gimmick of it kind of ruins it for me, too.

However, I've discovered that I kinda like Mater Suspiria Vision.

But you didn't make up a retarded name that sounds like a 12 year old thought it sounded cool. So no credit to you.




This crap just sounds like shitty lo-fi dance crap to me. AS I think I've posted somewhere before.

Re: Witch House, Drag, etc.

I really like oOoOO especially "Burnout eyes" and "Sedsumting" - beautiful tracks.

Closest I've done to Witch House; kinda similar but with a bit more tempo and industrialness:
